Oh I remember that National so well. Enter into a section, hit a rock ledge, put foot down to push on up the ledge and look up to see a checker with a 5 - WTF? I was so pissed and then after the event I heard there were like 60 protests. The no stop rule sucked so bad. The day before in Colorado they were not 5ing you for a nano second stop. We made the long ass drive all night to New Mexico, show up for the Sunday event in Taos and the trials nazis were all about 5.
